tag_insight = "The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
  operating system.

  Security fixes:
  
  * the possibility of a timeout value overflow was found in the Linux kernel
  high-resolution timers functionality, hrtimers. This could allow a local,
  unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service
  (kernel panic). (CVE-2007-5966, Important)
  
  * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux
  kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across
  multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak
  through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A
  remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted packet that
  would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385,
  Important)
  
  * Michael Tokarev reported a flaw in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in
  the Linux kernel. This driver allowed interfaces using this driver to
  receive frames larger than could be handled, which could lead to a remote
  denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1389, Important)
  
  * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a
  setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use
  this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a
  NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout
  Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important)
  
  * Ramon de Carvalho Valle reported two flaws in the Linux kernel eCryptfs
  implementation. A local attacker with permissions to perform an eCryptfs
  mount could modify the metadata of the files in that eCrypfts mount to
  cause a buffer overflow, leading to a denial of service or privilege
  escalation. (CVE-2009-2406, CVE-2009-2407, Important)
  
  * Konstantin Khlebnikov discovered a race condition in the ptrace
  implementation in the Linux kernel. This race condition can occur when the
  process tracing and the process being traced participate in a core dump. A
  local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a deadlock,
  resulting in a partial denial of service. (CVE-2009-1388, Moderate)
  
  Bug fixes:
  
  * possible host (dom0) crash when installing a Xen para-virtualized guest
  while another para-virtualized guest was rebooting. (BZ#497812)
  
  * no audit record for a directory removal if the directory and its subtree
  were recursively watched by an audit rule. (BZ#507561)
  
  * running "echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches" on systems under high memory
  load could cause ...
